My latest go-round with Bumble is winding down, but I met another match over the weekend. I ignored the rules and red flags with this one. Not to mention her pictures were all from the head/shoulders up, which is almost always a warning sign. We added each other on Instagram and her pictures on there were the same. In fact there are quite a few girls from Bumble that I’ve stopped talking to but are still lurking on my Instagram. I’m paying them no mind because I’m also a whore for followers.
Anyway, I met this one at a bar not too far from where she lived. As soon she walked in she confirmed my suspicions. I looked at her and was not attracted. She was nice enough, but nice is not enough. And while our online chats were fire, in person our conversational styles and personalities clashed. Not to mention it was hard to talk in a noisy bar. “No bars” is another rule of mine, but it was a handy meeting spot plus I knew the band that was playing there.
We stuck it out for an hour before parting ways. Short and painless. Afterwards I couldn’t help but wonder if I had gotten a glimpse at how dates view me when I walk through the door. Some of them have certainly looked disappointed from the get-go. In any event I’m trying my best to make myself fuckable. I’ve been hitting the gym and the kitchen big time during my vacation and am very pleased with my progress. Still have a ways to go yet…
In the meantime I’m thinking it’s time for another break from Bumble. I also just realized that Valentine’s Day is upon us. I don’t remember whether this is a good or bad time to be online dating. All I do remember is that I haven’t had a Valentine since 2003. Wow, has it really been that long? Damn. But we’ll see what happens. I also have some stories to share that predate this blog, so look for those soon.
